Jordan’s adoption plans

Jordan is the latest celebrity to announce plans for adopting children. She wants to find a special “friend” for her three-year old son Harvey who is blind and autistic. The glamour model reveals, “I’m definitely one for having a big family. on top of that, I want to adopt a kid with special needs like Harvey, because I know how to cope with it. He’s demanding and it would be nice for him to have a friend who understands.” Jordan has talked candidly in her new autobiography about Harvey’s condition which makes him dangerously overweight and difficult for her to carry since she weighs in at 45kg. The toddler takes four different types of medicine every day and throws tantrums if his mum tries to feed him healthy food. She says, “Having Harvey and becoming a mother has been one of the most amazing and fulfilling things I have ever done, but it’s definitely been one of the hardest as well and it has tested me more than anything else in my life ever has.” As well as Harvey, Jordan is mum to Junior, her baby with husband Peter André.
